Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


A bizarre and humorous game in which a mail-order contest brings you face-to-face with the monstrous invisible villains responsible for all the problems you read about in the newspaper. You and a parcel of magical gadgets are all that can keep the sleepy town of Fairhaven from the clutches of the Nytemare Corporation. A small but detailed game with randomized combat and easy puzzles, meant as an introduction to a larger Hero, Inc game (not yet written). I look forward to the sequel.

Great intro to an incomplete game, June 5, 2017

I enjoyed this short superhero game. You play as someone who is interested in becoming a superhero.

You have special glasses that let you see the world differently. There's some random combat, and some clever puzzles, and then the game just ends.

It'll probably never be finished now, but it's still interesting to play. Check it out!
